Bismack Biyombo

  1. The Al Jefferson Effect: Now that the Bobcats are playoff-bound, how they want their big man to help next

    Apr 17, 2014, 4:53 PM EDT

    Steve Clifford, Cody Zeller, Al Jefferson

    What affect will Jefferson have on the development of Kemba Walker, Bismack Biyombo, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Cody Zeller?

  2. Report: Bulls discussed Taj Gibson trade with Lakers, Wizards and Bobcats

    Jan 31, 2014, 6:50 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Chicago Bulls

    The Chicago Bulls, at least on some level, aren’t totally concerned with how they fare this season. Derrick Rose is already out for the year, and no matter how well everything else comes together, the superstar’s injury limits the Bulls’ upside in 2014. They already traded Luol Deng for zero assets that will help them…

  3. Bobcats’ Brendan Haywood out at least 12 weeks following foot surgery

    Oct 10, 2013, 1:03 PM EDT

    Brendan Haywood

    Brendan Haywood is not a central figure for the Bobcats this season, all they want from him is a few solid defensive minutes a night off the bench behind Al Jefferson, splitting time with Bismack Biyombo. Now they are going to have to wait for even that. Haywood is expected to be out more than…

  4. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: The Charlotte Bobcats

    Oct 2, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Al Jefferson

    Last season: Remember when the Bobcats started the season out 7-5 and we all kind of did a double take? That really happened, there was a moment where we wondered if this team wasn’t as terrible as we all thought. Then reality hit. The Bobcats went 14-56 the rest of the season. Charlotte had the…

  5. Cody Zeller looks comfortable, drops 23 in Summer League

    Jul 14, 2013, 9:31 PM EDT

    Cody Zeller

    LAS VEGAS — When the Bobcats have the ball next season, Al Jefferson is going to set up his own personal KOA Campground on the low block. When he is out of the camp and resting on the bench Bismack Biyombo will be in that same spot. Which means rookie No. 4 pick Cody Zeller…

  6. Report: Josh McRoberts reaches deal to re-sign with Bobcats

    Jul 5, 2013, 5:07 PM EDT

    Josh McRoberts

    Midseason Josh McRoberts was traded from Orlando to Charlotte for Hakim Warrick as two of the worst teams in the league rearranged the deck chairs on the Titanic. But McRoberts liked what he got in Charlotte — a starting role and nearly double the minutes. It showed on the court as he averaged what would…

  7. Report: Bobcats plan to pursue Al Jefferson in free agency

    Jul 1, 2013, 1:14 AM EDT

    Al Jefferson

    The Bobcats have have a lot of cap space and are looking to spend it on an impact player to help bolster their offensively challenged front court. Their target will be Utah Jazz free agent Forward/Center Al Jefferson according to Ken Berger of CBS Sports. Jefferson averaged 18 points and 9 rebounds a game last…

  8. Gerald Henderson says he wants to re-sign with Bobcats

    Mar 29, 2013, 9:39 AM EDT

    Gerald Henderson, Tobias Harris, Maurice Harkless, Kyle O'Quinn, Jameer Nelson

    Gerald Henderson, in his fourth year, is having his best season, and it’s good timing. This summer, he’ll be a free agent, likely a restricted one. Coming off his rookie-scale deal, Henderson has his first chance to secure a big medium contract. But he hinted he’s not thinking about only money. Henderson, via Rick Bonnell…

    Portland Trail Blazers v Charlotte Bobcats

    The Extra Pass is a new daily column that’s designed to give you a better look at a theme, team, player or scheme. Today, we hope David Stern isn’t reading.  Maybe you’re one of the lucky ones who have had their memory cleansed of everything lockout related, but try and remember this. Before everything went…

  10. D’Antoni again benched Gasol in final minutes. Again Gasol didn’t like it.

    Dec 19, 2012, 10:20 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol

    The pattern at the end of the Lakers win over the Bobcats was unmistakable — Pau Gasol would sub for Dwight Howard, then a few minutes later Howard would sub for Gasol. There’s a reason for that — lineups with both Gasol and Howard were -22. Against the Bobcats. Mike D’Antoni isn’t stupid, he saw…

  11. Video: Gerald Henderson dunks spectacularly on Dwight Howard

    Dec 19, 2012, 8:01 AM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Los Angeles Lakers

    Damn. That dunk had the Staples Center crowd buzzing when it was replayed — and he just did that over their new hero. Gerald Henderson cut down the lane and showed no fear going up over Dwight Howard with authority and dunking on the Lakers big man. Granted, Howard didn’t jump to defend it, but…

  12. Thursday And-1 links: Jay-Z says he had to fight to get Nets herringbone court

    Here is our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points more than I love a good barbecued brisket (well, maybe not that much, but…

  13. NBA Preview: Charlotte Bobcats

    Oct 5, 2012, 3:42 PM EDT

    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

    Last season: Worst. Team. Ever. Literally, no team has ever finished with a worse winning percentage than the 7-59 Bobcats. That had to sting owner Michael Jordan. They were the least efficient team in the league on offense and defense (they both scored the fewest and allowed the most points per possession in the league).…

  14. Kidd-Gilchrist trying to straighten out jumper before camp

    Sep 19, 2012, 2:25 PM EDT

    2012 NBA Draft

    General managers liked what they saw in Michael Kidd-Gilchrist heading into the draft — but coaches loved him. Coaches like leaders, and Kidd-Gilchrist was that on a loaded Kentucky team. He defended hard, hustled every play, attacked the rim and showed a real ability to score. He just needed a jump shot. His jumper didn’t…

  15. Damian Lillard, Tobias Harris among the NBA Summer League standouts

    LAS VEGAS — The NBA Summer League unfortunately came to a close on Sunday night, ending a week and a half of wonderful basketball being played on the UNLV campus. Okay, so not all of the basketball was necessarily wonderful … but there were some players that helped themselves out quite a bit while spending…

  16. NBA Summer League: Where Chris Copeland comes to shine

    chris copeland

    The NBA Summer League season continued on Sunday with seven more games of players looking to reach the next level by way of a couple solid exhibition games in lovely Las Vegas. It doesn’t seem like anyone is a can’t miss signee quite yet, but the odds began to favor a few players that have…

  17. Charlotte ‘wins’ Brendan Haywood amnesty auction

    Jul 14, 2012, 7:00 PM EDT

    Bobcats forward Maggette drives on Mavericks center Haywood during their NBA basketball game in Dallas

    This is legitimately a good move. The Bobcats need a true starting center, and Bismack Biyombo is not it. You can pair Brendan Haywood with Biyombo and have incredible length and size and Biyombo can focus on improving in space and be a weak-side help guy. This is a fine move. It’s really cheap, as…

    adidas Eurocamp 2012 Logo - Vertical

    The NBA’s pre-Draft camp in Chicago, which wrapped up on Friday, is the place where league front-office types get a combine-style look at U.S. college players. The equivalent for international players is adidas Eurocamp, a three-day event which kicks off June 10 in Treviso, Italy. The camp is celebrating its tenth anniversary this year, and…

  19. Point guards Irving, Rubio lead NBA All-Rookie team

    May 22, 2012, 3:56 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers rookie Kyrie Irving reacts after a turnover during the second quarter of the Cavaliers NBA basketball game against the Miami Heat in Cleveland

    The NBA is evolving into more of a point-guard league — if you can’t touch a quick ball handler on the perimeter they are going to carve up any defense. With the rules enforced as they are, Tony Parker can’t guard Tony Parker. So no shock that the two guys on top of the NBA…

  20. Paul Silas out as Bobcats coach. Is that really a surprise?

    Apr 30, 2012, 3:22 PM EDT

    Paul Silas

    After leading a Bobcats team to the worst winning percentage in NBA history, the Charlotte Bobcats announced they are not bringing back coach Paul Silas, team president Rod Higgens said. Yes, real shocker there. Charlotte went 7-59 under Silas last season, and while he certainly deserves some blame the fact is that  owner Michael Jordan…

  21. Bobcats lose 23rd straight, fall to Knicks to set record for futility

    Apr 26, 2012, 11:43 PM EDT

    Knicks Bobcats Basketball

    The Charlotte Bobcats are the worst team in NBA history. Charlotte fell to the Knicks by 20 points, 104-84, on a night when the Knicks basically gave their best players a night off. On a night the Bobcats should have played with desperation, they were passive and just missed good looks. It was their 23rd…

  22. League rescinds 13th technical on Cousins, who plays Tuesday

    Apr 24, 2012, 10:54 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins, Russell Westbrook

    A couple days ago we told you that unless Sacramento’s DeMarcus Cousins got his 13th technical and unless the league rescinded it he would be sitting out Tuesday night. After review, the league decided that the double technical when Cousins went face to face with Bismack Biyombo really shouldn’t have been one. The league made…

  23. Coach of ’72-73 Sixers says Bobcats have less talent

    Apr 24, 2012, 2:58 PM EDT

    Derrick Brown, Gerald Henderson, Kemba Walker

    Until this year, the 1972-73 Philadelphia 76ers were the model of futility — 9-73. A .110 winning percentage. A team led by Fred Carter and John Block (when Block was healthy) that had a lot of role-playing veterans on the downside of their career. But if Charlotte loses its final two games — at Orlando…

  24. DeMarcus Cousins has 13 technicals, could be out Tuesday

    Apr 23, 2012, 6:56 PM EDT

    DeMarcus Cousins

    DeMarcus Cousins has improved a number of areas of his game this year. His relationship with the referees is not one of them. Sunday night Cousins picked up his 13th technical foul of the season, when he went face to face with Bismack Biyombo and they got called for double technical. Cousin’s reaction to have…

  25. The Nine Circles of Bobcats Hell

    Mar 31, 2012, 1:00 PM EDT

    hellrufus

    The Bobcats are in Hell. Not literally. They’re still alive. They still get paid. They’re operational. They’re not tortured with fire. Other than that, though, yeah, pretty hell like. The team is on pace for historic levels of failure. It is literally just about as bad as it can get. There is nearly no reason…
